Wifi /shouldn't/ touch /etc/network/interfaces, usually the only programs
that will ever try to alter it are network managers. What procedure did
you use when trying to bring up wifi? I've previously used "ifup eth0"
from console or terminal, but with newest SHR (Jan31 or so opkg upgrade)
there IS NO ETH0 most of the time, resulting in "No such device" errors.
Also note that if you've been connecting and disconnecting the FR from the
host computer many times since the host was rebooted it may have problems.
Initially my usb0 was the third network device (the '3' in the first column
above) on my host, but currently it's 12. I've seen it get "too high"
before and only a reboot of the host would allow it to connect again.
(sorry, I don't remember where it started failing - IIRC it was at 32 but
don't shoot me if that's way off)
I recently encountered the same problem - unplug from USB, power-cycle
freerunner & wait for boot to finish, plug in USB, wait 5 secs, unplug USB,
wait 5 secs, plug back in, and I had a connection. (I don't know if it's
the FR or Ubuntu but if I boot or reboot the FR while attached to USB it
usually doesn't connect until unplugged and re-attached, so I'm already
used to unplug/wait/replug)
If that fails, then reboot the FR, open the terminal on the FR and check
the output of "ip a s usb0" - allowing for the randomly-selected MAC
address, it should look pretty much like:
3: usb0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen
link/ether 22:7d:18:7d:5a:a8 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
inet 192.168.0.202/24 brd 192.168.0.255 scope global usb0
inet6 fe80::207d:18ff:fe7d:5aa8/64 scope link
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
and "ip r" should show you:
192.168.0.0/24 dev usb0 src 192.168.0.202
default via 192.168.0.200 dev usb0
Presuming that's correct, do the same on the host computer, which should at
least show interfaces usb0, though it may be down or have no IP address at
this point. If it's down, try "ifup usb0" on the host (root or sudo) or
"ip l s usb0 up" and take a look at the data again. If the interface is up
on the host but has no IP, try "ip a a 192.168.0.200/24 dev usb0" (again,
root or sudo) and see if you can connect.
